I wish I grew up during the 90’s. Yes, I was born in 1990 but could I go to concerts? Could I appreciate the amazing artists that were producing novel, avant-guard music? Of course not. While Nine Inch Nails was producing their best work, I was listening to Veggie Tales. While Nirvana was starting the Grunge movement, I was listening to soundtracks from Disney movies (nothing wrong but they pale in comparison). And though I thankfully discovered these and other 90s groups when I could appreciate them, I will never hear many of them live 😦
Additionally if it wasn’t for awesome friends, I might miss some great songs. “Sex and Candy” is one of those great songs. Apparently it was #1 on the Billboard for 15 weeks in the 1995 (aka when I was five). Unfortunately, Marcy Playground was a one hit wonder. And maybe that is better because I don’t think they can top “Sex and Candy.” It is the epitome of a 90s pop song. A subtly sensual, smooth ballad. And the music video goes along with the theme. Weird, quirky, and sensual.
Favorite 90s song or group?
